On June 22nd thousands of people will be walking through the streets of London together for nature – this legal, peaceful, inclusive and family-friendly demonstration aims to be the biggest gathering of people for nature and climate that the UK has ever seen. It is both a celebration and a call for urgent political action on the nature and climate emergencies.


You can sign up to be part of Restore Nature Now | Pledge to march on June 22


Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, together with local environmental groups and artists, will be holding a workshop on Saturday 15th June to help everyone to get ready to make a (beautiful) scene! You will be able to create nature-inspired banners, displays and more.

God’s House Tower is a project conceived and managed by ‘a space’ arts – a visual arts charity in Southampton which exists to provide opportunities for emerging artists to make new work and develop their careers, along with supporting audiences to engage and learn from high quality artistic experiences.


The cultural programme at GHT is relevant, inclusive and creates opportunities for those who face barriers to engage with creativity and heritage. GHT provides opportunities for artists and underrepresented voices to delve into GHT’s heritage and invites responses for site-specific exhibitions that respond to our three priority themes; climate action, access and inclusion and anti-racism. GHT’s aim is to encourage Southampton’s communities to develop a lifelong interest in local heritage, arts, and culture.
